Abstract:The purpose of this ethnography is to explore the issues contained in Chinese families immigration stories, from the mothers' perspective in particular, as well as Chinese immigrant children's educational and cultural experiences in the United States. Taking into consideration the interaction of race, gender and ethnicity, the objective of the study is to learn about Chinese women's experiences of being a woman, being a Chinese, and being a mother and the construction of their identities in transnational context. Qualitative research methodology and ethnography are applied to disclose the impact of globalization and immigration on the lives of Chinese mothers. Endarkened feminist epistemology together with poststructuralism and transnational feminism is used as the theoretical frameworks for this research.
